FreeBSD : Django -- possible XSS in traceback section of technical 500 debug page (aaab03be-932d-11e7-92d8-4b26fc968492)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Django blog :

In older versions, HTML autoescaping was disabled in a portion of the
template for the technical 500 debug page. Given the right
circumstances, this allowed a cross-site scripting attack. This
vulnerability shouldn't affect most production sites since you
shouldn't run with DEBUG = True (which makes this page accessible) in
your production settings.
